Conversion of a Panasonic DMC-TZ8 to full spectrum for infrared photography, 06 May 2022

This is my second full spectrum conversion for infrared photography. My first attempt, with a Canon Powershot A1400, was only partially successful in that I managed to remove the IR pass filter but it was a little clumsy and the resulting photographs were never quite in focus.
